  1. Blade Rondo is a fast-paced 2 player card game featuring beautiful gothic anime art. The gameplay is simple but sharp, a nice change from the usual collectable card games. A game takes around 10-15 minutes. There are also a few expansions out which haven't been translated yet. In order to play the mod you need Tabletop Simulator on Steam. Workshop link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1895115999 Thanks to the original mod creator sakuya4667 and @Cyrillej1 for her awesome image editing work. PS: I actually did this TL last year but never got around to sharing it. The translation itself only took 2 days -- it took longer to figure out the rules xD.
  2. Your Visual Novel, Manga, Anime, Game of the Decade

    VN: Mahou Shoujo (lifelike characters and interactions) Anime: Simoun (could not expect an anime like this, it's like a moody space opera with character development) Manga: N/A LN: Mushoku Tensei, it made me think about what it would be like raising a family. Grimgar: Has influenced me a lot over the years. Serious party combat isekai ftw.
  3. Happy new year

    Happy new year, friends!
  4. DDC is a cool VN. I simultaneously relate to their "looking at humanity from an outsider's perspective", and am shocked by how extreme their perspectives are. It's pretty weird and out there, but other than that, it's everything you could ask for in a plot-VN: great heroines, interesting and consistent MC, and routes that go in different directions.
  5. Saihate no Ima 最果てのイマ [Xuse]

    I didn't like Cross Channel, but I do plan on trying Saihate no Ima one day. The themes of a "sanctuary" are a bit interesting. How would you compare this work to Kazoku Keikaku? Would you recommend starting with that work, for someone who isn't that into Romeo Tanaka's works.
  6. It's finally here... MAGGOT BAITS!!!!

    I've been wanting to read Maggot baits for a while, but gotta wait until I feel confident enough to handle the sanity loss. The art (the only ClockUp game who's art I genuinely like) and the writing are major draws for me.
  7. Other goals like writing, game dev, blogging, friends, work skills, etc. have become more concrete and important to me, such that I am no longer fine with centering my life around reading VN's. Actually my mind is so much on those things (regardless of progress or not) that I find it hard to immerse in VN's and keep reading regularly. Reading progress slows to a crawl. Reading lots of VN's used to be a goal in itself to me. Now, I just chip away at 1-2 titles while stalling the rest. I also play some short interesting works from time to time, those are good fun too. Overall, I've dropped from 12 full-length VN's a year to reading 3-4 full-length VN's per year. I definitely could do better, with this mystical thing called time management, lol. I still enjoy the medium a lot, but I think I like that familiar reading feeling just as much as the story. For discovering new kinds of titles, I rather do that for anime nowadays, as they are much shorter and -- everything is new to me in a way -- I haven't watched that many types of anime. (You could say I'm familiar with about 50% of VN genres, but only 20% of anime genres).
  8. Steel [Graviton]

    I knew about Steel and its EGS reviews but it was hard to justify trying such a long title without knowing what the structure was like. Good to know that there's decent character focus. Thanks for the helpful review.
  9. I feel like organizing a server, then doing a group server project together (like making a mini-VN), or working on translating a shorter medium is better for having social interaction. Maybe because of the length of the text, lack of chapter releases (+ people following those releases), VN projects are pretty solidarity from my experience. I found more interaction/collaboration when I was helping with translating a LN in an existing discord server.
  10. Hmm fair enough. I haven't played that many charage so I don't know many of the truly easy ones. I put Leyline because the sentences are short and the dialogue is super simple and standard if the reader's watched anime. It doesn't matter if you can't understand the one incantation, you can see what's going on. Most of the other ones are for the same reason, simple dialogue/short sentences.
  11. 6000 words is solid vocab start (it's possible to start from about 1000 words), but you really should study grammar if you want to read. For starting VN's a rule of thumb is you want N3 (maybe N4 at the very start). Here are some easy VNs *翠の海 *そしての世界より *星織ユメミライ *Ley Line 黄昏時の境界線 *この大空に、翼をひろげて None of these are short though. Reddit has a list too: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KnyyDt7jimEz-dgeMSKymRaT2r3QKBPm9AzqZ6oUWAs/pub
  12. What are you playing?

    Started playing Otome ga Tsumugi Koi no Canvas . I'm playing for the icha icha to come, lol. It's a nice heartful charage. For a jousou vn the protagonist is sometimes impossibly good at being a maid, and there are overly kira kira sappy moments which kind of makes me roll my eyes. The art and voice acting is really great though. The characters outfits is quite good. My favourite voicing is Akie, who has the same VA as Irene from Eustia.
  13. The dialogue in Leyline is really easy, but since it has a mystery element that might make it harder to understand eventually.
  14. Shinimasu 100% tl celebration thread

    Lol nice avatar, its the "mission accomplished finally can die in peace" face. Grats on finishing
